Darren Waller was routinely coming off the board in the fifth or sixth round of 2023 fantasy drafts, but he was a major disappointment last year, missing five games due to a hamstring injury and averaging 9.4 PPR fantasy points in the games he played. He finished the 2023 season with 52 catches for 552 yards and one touchdown. Waller was once among the most impactful tight ends in football, producing back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons for the Raiders in 2019-2020. But Waller is entering his age-32 season and has missed 19 games over the last three years. Insist on a discount if you're thinking about investing in the oft-injured Waller for 2024.

Darren Waller still mulling over retirement

New York Giants TE Darren Waller has not yet come to a decision in regards to his potential retirement this offseason, according to the Athletic. The 8-year veteran has dealt with a number of injuries that have caused him to miss a total of 19 games over the past 3 seasons. Waller also stated that he hopes to make a decision prior to the start of the NFL draft on April 25th.

Fantasy Impact

Waller's potential departure would result in an increased target share for the other pass-catching options on this roster, most notably Jalin Hyatt and Wan'Dale Robinson. Both of these players have shown flashes throughout their young careers. With more targets being thrown their way, Hyatt and/or Robinson may become very productive for fantasy if Waller decides to hang up the cleats. On the other hand, the move would negatively impact Daniel jones' fantasy outlook. This is a team that is bereft of offensive weapons and Jones can ill-afford to lose his most reliable pass-catching option.
